"I highly recommend Norman Jaillet photography! I had such a wonderful and easy experience. From the moment I walked in the door Norman made me feel at ease and very comfortable. I was so nervous having my headshot done as I'm rather camera shy. But Norman is very easy going and extremely patient. He knew exactly how to calm my nerves and make me laugh so he could truly capture the essence of ME. Not like some headshots that can look fake and too "portrait" looking. Norman by far is the best in the business!!" Kara Maciorowski

MEET NORMAN JAILLET
I love taking pictures of faces.
During my time as a Purchasing Executive, I spent three years working as an ex-pat in Singapore. With my daughters hand-me-down camera in tow, I started taking pictures. But it wasn't the breathtaking scenery that captured my attention, it was the faces of the people.
Upon arrival back in Boston, I decided to establish a new career as a headshot photographer. So I studied studio lighting, facial expressions, and developed relationships with exceptional headshot photographers.
Often, my clients come in camera-shy and self-conscious. After a few minutes in the studio, the camera disappears and all that remains is a stunning, natural moment in time—the facial expressions that make you likable, approachable, and trustworthy.
Wherever you want to go in life, let me help you get there with a headshot that showcases who you are and where you're going.
Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions.
Do you have a studio?
Yes, I do! I'm located at Mills 58 in Peabody MA. You won't be visiting a "home studio" or shooting in my garage. It's not shared space so there will be no scheduling conflicts. My well-appointed 900 sq ft studio comes complete with bathroom and changing area for your comfort and convenience.
Should I do my own make-up?
Well... you can. I prefer you to use one of my awesome MUA/HMUA (Makeup Artists/Hair + Makeup Artists) as they know best how to apply for the shoot expertly. Please don't use make-up store cosmetic areas as while they may be useful for a night on the town, it doesn't translate well to headshots. I prefer that men not use make-up, but if you wear it every day, then go for it!
Do you offer discounts?
For three or more individuals on the same day in my studio … yes! Please inquire for details.
Will you shoot on-location?
Absolutely! The studio is easily transportable to any location. Please inquire for a customized quote.
Can I wear jewelry to my session?
Some jewelry can be distracting. But if you want to, sure! Do you have a signature look? Black/white pearls or hoop earrings? Ear studs are fine. I just don't want to distract from your face.
What other photography services do you offer?
I’m a headshot and portrait guy. I think it’s important to specialize rather than generalize. I don’t photograph babies, weddings, real estate, products, etc. But if you require those services, I’d be glad to provide you with the names of some excellent photographers.
